I have investigated the said hoses and the current issue is rusting of the reinforcing wire, so they need to be replaced. Has anyone experience of doing this ??

Both these hoses route aft of the port battery box, then are snug under the large exhaust hose and cannot be seen or accessed. Somewhere out of sight they then turn vertical and pass through drilled holes in the port locker floor up to the anti-syphon. The hoses are a snug tight fit in the holes. If I remove the hose to replace it I cannot see a way to feed new hoses back in either starting from the locker end or the engine side !! I can only imagine that Siltala fitted these hose and the exhaust hoses before the battery box was in place.

Is it time to give the job to a professional to work it out ??
